Windows 7: StartUp Programs not loading often

Windows 7 Ultimate X64
StartUp Programs not loading often

I have several programs such as AVG, DFX, IDM, APC PowerChute and smile webshots which set to automatically start when i boot Windows 7. But sometimes it doesn't load and I have to manually open each one. I went into msconfig and it shows all these programs are in startup. What could be the problem? And i just have a look at services.msc and all the programs set to automatic start.

Welcome to the forums 7Human, can you post a ss of the startup tab of msconfig.

Upload SS

I'm guessing that it is not the program that is set for startup but some of it's services.

Try this

Load programs at startup

Got it now…..

The problem is the APC software has a bunch of .exe’s with the main 3 being a systray Icon called display.exe – that one has a shortcut in the Startup folder, then there’s one for the systray called apcsystray.exe, and then we have the actual PowerChute.exe, so......

Anyway what I did was create a task run program using the "apcsystray.exe" and removed the "display.exe" from the Startup folder under All Programs and now all is good.
